The GT and Wake numbers were surprising.


They are two of the smallest athletics departments in the ACC, but I thought they would be a lot closer in line with someone like NC State, who doesn't have many wealthy donors.

When Mike Bobinski left Georgia Tech last August he was heavily criticized for not leaving GT in the best shape. This shows some of that. Hopefully they can improve their fund raising. I'm not sure what Ron Wellman is doing at Wake Forest, but they do have wealthy donors. I'm not sure what's going on there other than he let his friend Jeff Bzdelik destroy the basketball program. Danny Manning is having to rebuild it, and basketball is what drives Wake fans.
